Ten Minute Halloween Ghost

 Hello and welcome to my spooktacular tutorial! Today I am going to show you how I made this adorable ghost. 

For this project I am using Delight Clay™. It is easy to use and has a lovely, soft, marshmallow-like texture. 

All you need is:

  • Delight Clay
  • water and paintbrush for smoothing
  • a pencil to form the eyes
  • watercolor paints and small brushes
  • spray varnish

Step One:

Grab a palm full of Delight Clay™ and form it into the shape of your ghost. Gently tap the base on a table to ensure that it stands flat.

Step Two:

Using some water and your finger/paintbrush, smooth the clay.

Step Three:

Use your pencil to poke two holes for the eyes.

Step Four:

Add black water-color paint to the eyes using a small paint brush. Use a soft brush, or your finger to add paint to the cheeks. Set aside to dry.

Step 5

Spray with varnish when it is completely dry. 

That's it! You are done. Wasn't that simple?


  1. Do not bake Delight Clay™ or dry with a heat gun.
  2. Only use a spray varnish - the watercolor paint will shift with a paint-on varnish.
  3. Add a hook to make a hanging ornament.
  4. You can use acrylic paint also, just ensure the clay is dry first.
  5. HAVE FUN!
